small stuff like that is always a vibration problem I think ! guys lot of times use whats called a steady rest. some sort of device that will rotate with the spindle yet rub against it to held stop the vibration. for a look at some, go to Google “Images” instead of “web” and type in steady rests. main thing that would help tho might be to be sure when the vibration starts is to slow the speed of the lath down as slow as you can get. I don’t think your gonna get away with out a good bit of sandin no matter! I do think i’d go with the chuck too. you probably would have to turn the sticks around a couple times. how about a cone in your tail stock center?
